The Yamaha YPT 220 has a 61-note, non-weighted keyboard, and weighing less than 5 kg makes it the ideal lightweight and portable keyboard. The YPT 220 comes with great sounding AWM stereo sampling, featuring 375 high-quality instrument voices and 100 accompaniment styles. At the touch of a button, you can turn your YPT 220 into a great sounding acoustic piano thanks to the Portable Grand function. This keyboard is ideal for those just starting out with the inclusion of the Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S) which provides fun and interactive personal tuition, allowing you to play along to 102 built-in songs and learn musical notation from the chord dictionary. The Yamaha YPT 220 comes complete with 9 reverb settings and panel sustain.
The YPT 220 offers an impressive range of voice settings, including 361 Xglite voices, 13 drum kits and a sound effect kit. The custom LCD (92 mm x 32 mm) clearly displays voice settings, sound effects, metronome, tempo range (32-280), transpose (-12 to 0, 0 to +12), tuning and many other modes. The transpose and tempo functions make it easy to accompany pieces written in different keys and performed at different speeds. The YPT 220 is fully compatible with GM and Xglite, and features a multi-fingering preset, OTS (One Touch Setting) and style control preset (into, main x 2, fill-in, ending).
The keyboard has 2 x 2.5W amplifiers, linked to 2 x 12 cm speakers, delivering a balanced sound that is ideal for use in homes, schools and colleges. The YPT 220 is truly portable, powered by either an adapter or batteries to deliver great sounds on the go. It also comes with a headphone socket, MIDI in/out, music rest, and may be connected to an optional foot pedal.

- My son love it!
As a parent it is so much more satisfying paying for something like this and watch our son progress rather than a games console... Would recommend!

All in all, although it's cheaper than most other keyboards, it's great quality and will provide hours of entertainment and learning opportunities.
- Excellent, especially for beginners
